Abstract

Surveillance after oncological treatment constitutes a necessary element of comprehensive cancer care. Determining optimal follow-up schedules, including their cost effectiveness, is critical on clinical, organisational and economic grounds. Owing to a lack of prospective clinical studies providing the highest level of evidence, in most cancers optimal surveillance schemes cannot be determined. Hence, currently most recommendations are based on retrospective studies and expert opinions. In Poland comprehensive and uniform recommendations on post-treatment surveillance in cancer patients are not available. This article, prepared by a group of experts in oncology and family medicine, presents a proposal for the follow-up schemes after treatment in major solid malignancies in adults.
